Beach House announces new album, Depression Cherry, plus extensive world tour
May 26, 2015 10:05am | Cosequence Of Sound

On August 28th, Beach House will return with a brand new album called Depression Cherry. Due out through Sub Pop Records, the nine-track LP follows 2012’s superb Bloom and serves as the dream pop duo’s fifth to date. It was recorded and produced by the band with the help of longtime collaborator Chris Coady (Future Islands, Wavves) at Studio in the Country in Bogalusa, Louisiana.

According to a press release, Depression Cherry will be see the Baltimore two-piece crank up the volume and explore unchartered sonic waters:

In general, this record shows a return to simplicity, with songs structured around a melody and a few instruments, with live drums playing a far lesser role. With the growing success of Teen Dream and Bloom, the larger stages and bigger rooms naturally drove us towards a louder, more aggressive place; a place farther from our natural tendencies. Here, we continue to let ourselves evolve while fully ignoring the commercial context in which we exist.

Depression Cherry Tracklist:
01. Levitation
02. Sparks
03. Space Song
04. Beyond Love
05. 10:37
06. PPP
07. Wildflower
08. Bluebird
09. Days of Candy

Along with the LP news, Beach House has lined up an extensive world tour that kicks off in August and stretches well into Decemb...



Primal Scream @ Warsaw: May 21, 2015
May 26, 2015 10:00am | CMJ


It must be National Britpop Month in New York, as right on the heels of recent Blur and Noel Gallagher shows in town, classic British alt-rock masters Primal Scream came through last Thursday for one of two NYC shows. Seeing them in the unfussy, intimate cool of the old Polish hall Warsaw in the Greenpoint neighborhood of Brooklyn was an added treat.

In between fat pierogis and tall beers, the show started with Nicole Atkins, a singer/songwriter from Neptune, New Jersey, with a wonderful voice, warming up the incoming hordes.

When Primal Scream finally came on, the crowd was shaking. While the band is practically an institution in the U.K., they’re more of a cult act over here, and their cult is rabid. The band zig-zagged through their diverse catalog (it’s admittedly not fair to just lump them into “Britpop”), as they churned through Kill All Hippies, Shoot Speed, Moving Up and more as the fans went crazy, dancing all over. The encore was I

May 26, 2015 9:46am | Brooklyn Vegan

Beach House are finally ready to follow 2012's Bloom with a new album. They just announced that Depression Cherry will be out August 28 via Sub Pop, and once again the duo recorded it with producer Chris Coady. In a press release they say that unlike their last two releases, which were structured to fit the larger rooms the band had been playing, this one features less live drums. "Here, we continue to let ourselves evolve while fully ignoring the commercial context in which we exist," they add. Check out the tracklist and a sample lyric from each song, below.

The band also announced a tour which doesn't include any NYC shows, but they'll be in the area this August hitting Albany, New Haven and more. All dates are listed below...

When Rabenreither was initially trying his Gold Star moniker and country songwriting on for size he got a gig opening for Lucinda Williams. Williams encouraged him to continue … More »



Ufomammut brought their first-ever US tour to Saint Vitus with Usnea & Mountain God (pics, setlist)

Ufomammut @ Saint Vitus - 5/19/15

Devastatingly heavy? Why yes, they were, but that's really just one component of the experience. Watching Ufomammut play is like being stirred in a cauldron of something thick and molten. Somehow, it swirls, but on the surface level it doesn't even seem like it should be able to move at all. Each song seemed to take them deeper into space, the entirety of Ecate rearranged for stage presentation and followed by "Oroboros" from Oro: Opus Alter, "Stigma" from 2008's Idolum and, finally, "God" from 2004's Snailking, which was brought to a brutal finish as though the trio were trying to pull apart the remnants of the galaxy on a molecular level, some great cosmic code punched in to result in the end of all things in multi-dimensions. It was like that. Sound as force. Senses colliding, and Urlo headbanging with his entire body the whole time. [The Obelisk]
Italian doomers Ufomammut are no newcomers (their first album came out 15 years ago) but they're currently touring the US for the very first time. They hit NYC at Saint Vitus on 5/19 ahead of their Maryland Deathfest appearance for a very dimly lit show that (as the above review points out) included all of their new album Ecate plus a few oldies. Their Portland-based, Relapse-signed tourmates Usnea and locals Mountain God opened the sh...

Ty Dolla $ign
May 26, 2015 9:11am | StereoGum
The sonically playful and perpetually horny Californian R&B singer Ty Dolla $ign has left a seismic imprint on his genre, and he's done it without, as yet, releasing a proper studio album. That's scheduled to change this September, as the official debut Free TC looms. And from the looks of things, the LP will feature … More »
